Gabe Zichermann Speaker Biography

Gabe Zichermann is the foremost expert on designing for engagement, helping organizations and individuals achieve balance in their relationships to technology, each other and the world.

He is the founder of Onward, the breakthrough AI and data science-based approach for helping people achieve Tech-Life Balance and has worked with major governments, Fortune 500s and startups to help them maximize positive engagement.

Zichermann is also the author of three books on the subject of engagement, including the widely beloved Gamification Revolution (McGraw Hill), and the engagement design bible, Gamification by Design.

A resident of Los Angeles, Gabe is an acclaimed speaker, educator, and advocate whose TV, online and conference appearances always generate discussion, buzz, learning, and excitement.


Exploring this topic led Gabe down a very interesting path, weaving together his personal experience as an entrepreneur with an understanding of behavioral psychology, game theory and organizational development. The things he has learned along the way can be consolidated into a single idea. He calls this the Failosophy – a set of tools, techniques, and tricks that can help you face your fear of failure, create an entrepreneurial culture, and succeed like never before.

If you’re not on the precipice of failure right now, you’re not living up to your full potential.


Employee Digital Wellness and Productivity in the Distracted Age

Technology has profoundly improved our lives while also creating completely new challenges for engagement, productivity, and wellness. Modern apps and devices are driving an explosion in addictive and distracting behaviors whose major workplace impacts are starting to be felt across all sectors, and by employees at all career/life stages. Learn the best practices used by leading organizations to give people control over their distracted brains and improve productivity, satisfaction, and happiness. Discover how technology holds the key to both the problem of distraction and its cure as well as what breakthrough approaches have been successful across industries and the world. Explore the workplace and employee of the future when we’ve achieved tech-life balance.


Gamification and Employee Engagement

Employees are more distracted than ever due to increased workplace demands and our always-on tech culture. At the same time, organizational technology and processes are designed to assume a “captive” audience of compliant workers when today’s most valuable team members are expected to be highly autonomous, independent and entrepreneurial. Set against this backdrop, smart organizations are using the power of games to bridge the gap between the 20th and 21st-century workforce, using gamification and engaging technology to drive learning, teamwork, productivity and recruitment to new heights. In this talk, you’ll learn the secrets of driving sustained employee engagement and how gamification can transform your organization to be ready for the future based on examples, neuroscience, and practical data.
